2017 Living a Faith That Does Justice Award Recipient:
The Social Action Coordinating Commission is pleased to announce this year’s “Living a Faith that Does Justice” award winner, Robert Hilmer.
Bob and his wife, Sandy are long time IHM Parishoners and two of our most active volunteers.
While Bob’s list of volunteer activities is extensive and varied, an important theme is his commitment to feeding the hungry and reaching out to the lonely and isolated. He is an active and proud member of the Knights of Columbus and serves as the coordinator of the parish monthly breakfast. He also coordinates the IHM/K of C Christmas Dinner, providing a holiday for anyone who wants to share a holiday meal. In addition to the meal at the parish, volunteers provide meals to shut-ins and deliver meals to police and fire fighters who are working on Christmas. It is our way of expressing our appreciation and gratitude for their service. Our volunteer food related activities include the SEM food pantry and the Race Track Ministry. In addition to meeting the physical needs of the hungry, Bob’s outreach includes an understanding and a commitment to responding to those who are lonely and isolated. His friendly and caring approach to all he meets is an inspiration.
The Living a Faith that Does Justice award will be presented at the Social Action Coordinating Commission Dinner Meeting on Monday, March. 6.
Congratulations, Bob, for this well-deserved honor and recognition of your commitment of service.
